BACAA is a recognized institution offering Workshops with eminent teachers of the Contemporary Classical Realist Tradition and weekly Art Classes for artists of all abilities who desire to study drawing and painting in this tradition. We are located 30 minutes south of San Francisco, CA in the beautiful town of  San Carlos CA. The BACAA studio has 25-foot ceilings and high north facing windows, which provide the ideal environment for classical study.

Beginning in 2001, BACAA set a high standard by hosting a successful workshop with Anthony Ryder.  For the last ten years we have successfully hosted distinctive workshops with many esteemed teachers, such as master artist Ted Seth Jacobs, Michael Grimaldi, Dan Thompson, Jon deMartin, Juliette Aristides, and many more. We have developed a relationship with the realist community in the United States as well as in Europe. We now host about ten master workshops per year in addition to our weekly classes.
